how some cities are arming teachers. while many parents are taking safety into their own hands by buying bullet-resistant backpacks for their children. >> there's a lot of fear out there. there is a lot of fear. >> nothing shows it more than that. >>> let's get to the breaking developments on the extreme weather battering much of the country. there's reports of damaging tornados in the south? >> yeah, everything you're going to see, elizabeth, is coming from one storm system. from those dust storms in texas, to the severe warnings in seven states. let's take the ones that are immediate right now. the biggest danger from the severe storm reports. we have multiple tornado warnings popping up right now in alabama and louisiana. we had reports of folks trapped in mobile and damage in the storms popping up as we speak right now in all of those storm zones. this is where the storms are likely to be strongest today. this storm system has a big snowmaking low to the north. but a cold front to the south. jacksonville, to atlanta to charleston to raleigh. this is where the strong storms,
today. more than 200 firefighters, many from new york city, stood at attention outside the service for daniel barden, the 7-year-old who wanted to grow up to be one of them. >> as a firefighter, even more as a parent, it's just -- it's very upsetting that, you know, these young kids had their lives taken away from them so early. they had so much more to live for and so much more to give to the world. >> reporter: today, once again, parents doing something we never expect to do for our children, eulogize them. daniel described as "such a light, always smiling, unfailingly polite." in his mother's words, he was "just so good." also laid to rest, 27-year-old teacher victoria soto, who saved so many of her students. her sister, jillian, said, "you have been a hero to me for a lot longer than five days. you've been my big sister, the one i always looked up to." also on hand, music legend and family friend, paul simon, who sang one of soto's favorite songs -- "the sound of silence." and, in the midst of all the funerals that took place today, the kids who got a chance to visit their new
highways are very slow. the county and city work crews are out in force salting and plowing. and generally on the main thoroughfa thoroughfare, it is moving slowly. and as the conditions get worse as we see the heavy winds pick up, 35 to 45 miles an hour, start to dry out some of the moisture from the snow, you could end up with heavy icing conditions and the kind of conditions you're talking about where somebody could get stranded and possibly even have life threatened. so everybody in wisconsin, the national guard's playing a part, but we're certainly in partnership with the first responder communities and the state patrol, department of natural resources. >> oh, major general donald dunbar, thank you for talking with us and the best of luck with all of your efforts. if you're in wisconsin, if you go out in your car, put an emergency kit in your car. include a candle. it can save your life. a candle can warm your car and mean the difference between life and death. and i want to turn now to another very big story we've been following, it's the fallout over that scathing report on the atta

cities and towns. in the 11th congressional district which i represent in new york city, the new york city police department reported 274 victims from 226 incidents involving gun violence. and that was in two neighborhoods in the district that i represent. the majority of these crimes were registered in just two communities. 274 victims from 226 incidents. now, fortunately, not everyone perished in these incidents, but one incident leads to many and the repercussions and trauma to those who witnessed these incidents who dooged a bullet in our community, is immeasurable. we have the authority to focus our efforts on penalties for gun trafficking and unlawful sales of firearms. we have the authority to prevent the retail sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines or clips designed for military combat use and we have the ability to register handguns and microstamp munitions to trace ownership and origin. we have the authority. we only need to have the courage to act. the newtown tragedy has highlighted a vexing issue that we as americans must address. it is imperative that we se
of the city and surrounding mountains much the developer hopes the tower becomes a symbol of phoenix and destination for tourists. >> interesting design. >> i know. it really is. have you ever seen a sand storm in phoenix? it will be cool to see a sand storm from that tower. >> thank you so much, christine. >>> all right. so you were waiting for the day that tim tebow would be a starting nfl quarterback. you're going to have to wait a little bit longer. the quarterback question for the struggling jets has been resolved. tim tebow is not the answer. >> tim can play, you know, quarterback through our traditional things. but to me, i was just -- i just kind of made a decision that in my gut i feel best thing for our football team is for greg to be our quarterback now. >> so the greg he's talking about is greg mcelroy who will start in place of the struggling mark sanchez. mcelroy leap-frogged tebow to go from the third string to starter leaving t-boy with the clipboard still. >> tim tebow is not happy about this. "the new york daily news" is reporting that he will ask to be traded when
small towns and big cities all across america every day. since friday morning, a police officer was gunned down in memphis, leaving four children without their mother. two officers were killed outside a grocery store in topeka. a woman was shot and killed inside a las vegas casino. three people were shot inside an alabama hospital. a four-year-old was caught in a drive-by in missouri, and taken off life support just yesterday. each one of these americans was a victim of the everyday gun violence that takes the lives of more than 10,000 americans every year -- violence that we cannot accept as routine. so i will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. we won't prevent them all -- but that can't be an excuse not to try. it won't be easy -- but that can't be an excuse not to try. and i'm not going to be able to do it by myself. ultimately if this effort is to succeed it's going to require the help of the american people -- it's going to require all of you. if we're going to change things, it's going to take a wave of a
this through a number of different channels. some of which can best be discussed in other cities. but as you know the fbi is leading the investigation because the department is very actively supporting this. i've been at liberty to talk to the living leadership about the importance of their cooperation and investigation but i could wear making some progress. ambassador pope works everyday on this issue in support of the fbi. i was in tunisia last week to emphasize to the tunisian president and prime minister the importance we attach to cooperation of detaining one of the suspects in the benghazi attack. and i believe where making some progress. so the answer is, to your question is we don't have all the edges yet but we're working those were little sick and i think we're making some progress. >> thank you. with regard to in the mentation of the recommendations of this report, you go through the report, senator corker referred to 18 different accountability review boards over a number of years. a recurring theme seems to be stovepipe decision-making. just earlier today i further bureaucratic
women's leadership academy in the harlem area of new york city, one of the first and most successful pilot projects for girls public schools with which i know the presiding officer is very familiar. and i remember the time i invited senator barbara mikulski to texas, because she and i have worked together supporting for so many years, and this year have been, she chair, and i ranking members of the appropriations subcommittee. we went to visit the johnson space center because i wanted her to see the great work they are doing there. and then i took her to the houston rodeo, because i wanted her to see the texas culture. well, i'm not sure that the senator who grew up in the inner city of baltimore knew exactly how people would dress at the rodeo, but suffice it to say, there were a lot of rhinestones and cowboy boots and big hair and big hats. senator mikulski whispered to me during this time, kay, if we were here monday and we went to the chamber of commerce, do these people look like this? and i said, yes, pretty much. so senator mikulski and i also teamed up to pass the homemaker i
, by communities, cities, families, counties, states, but there is one thing that cannot be handled by those other entities, and that is our national security. we can't have the individual states providing for the national security. and that's why i believe that it is the single most important responsibility for the national government. and i believe that we can have a cost-effective national defense. i believe that we can correctly focus on ways because we know, and the horror stories we have heard about some of the waste that's taken place in the pentagon, we have to bring an end to that. no doubt about it. but at the same time, in my -- my friend from utah just talked about the fact that our allies with the north atlantic treaty organization are spending a greater percentage of their gross domestic product, national security for the reason that they have felt threatened. they have lived under repression. there are nato allies that have been countries that were basically under the control of the former soviet union. and in light of that, they continue to live with an understanding of how importa
much time in pennsylvania think of it as a -- a state of big cities and small towns but they may miss the -- the substantial agricultural economy that we have. agribusiness in our state is a $46.4 billion industry. 17.5% of pennsylvanians are employed in the so-called food and fiber system. and one of the questions we have to ask is: what does this all mean? well, i think it certainly means that at least we need a five-year farm bill, not -- not a short-term farm bill. we do too much of that around here on -- on other areas of public policy. we should do what we've always done in the senate long before i got here, passing five-year bills with regard to the farm bill. it does create economic opportunities in rural areas. it sustains the consumers and businesses that rely upon our rural economy. the senate-passed farm bill would reduce the deficit by approximately $23 billion through the elimination of some subsidies, the consolidation of programs, and -- and producing greater efficiencies in the delivery mechanisms in programs. now, we're having a big debate about the end of the year a

and not only for the midwest but also the south and gulf coast. speaking . snow. talking about it kansas city up to greenbay. we could get a foot or more of snow. blizzard warnings in the areas of red and gusts of 50 miles per hour and blowing snow and scriz down to nothing and travel is going to be crippled in the midwest and that is going to cause a ripple affect in the country. >> steve: how rare are december tornados in really? >> we are on the low side of seeing tornado month of december but tornados can happen any where or any. it is a rarelyy rare event for the month of december. >> brian: meanwhile chicago is hit with the storm . we found wfld anita joining us right now. >> hi, and good morning to you, o'hare airport is saying they may have to ground flights because of the wind gusts we are seeing already this morning. personallyy, i want to let our viewers know if you come to chicago. pack two different things. have your rain boots and you will need your no boots for later. things are going to change . another thing to keep in mind. gas up their car. this is the day when the snow hit
my firearm. i don't want any regulation whatsoever. here in new york, here in new york city, the laws are about as strict as they are anywhere in the country. so how do we strike this balance? >> you strike a balance by saying look, anyone has a right to firearms that are reasonably related to self-defense there is a license for that and hunting and sports. but no one has a right to have military-style firearms that are designed to kill large numbers of people as rapidly as possible. common sense says that. and people in rural areas will recognize that too. everybody wants their kids to be safe. >> sure. >> and the fact is they're having more and more of these outrages. you know, as i've said before, we had a maniac attack an elementary school in china last friday, the same day as newtown, but no one was killed. >> that's a talking point that is out there quite a bit. the bottom line is the american people are ready for change. will the congress walk in lockstep with the american people in this? that's the big question. congressman jerrold nadler, great to have you with us tonight. th
